Checking a crack in the sea ice near Cape Royds in late winter when the sun has just begun to return to the sky. Note the displacement of the vehicle tracks on either side of the crack in the ice since the previous crossing.
Penguin Sewer Stream. One of the streams of penguin effluent running away from the nesting area. The ground in this area is basically years and years of compressed penguin poo.
